Make sure you can enjoy vaping this summer by looking after your vape kit. Otherwise, you might find yourself missing out on your favourite flavours. Here are our top tips to keep you vaping all summer long.
Did you know that hot weather is bad for your vape juices? E-juices that are left in the sun can change flavour and chances are you won’t like their new taste. Your favourite juice may taste off or downright gross.
This change in flavour will start happening once the vape juices reach 40°C. You can even see it happen as the liquid may start to change colour, turning yellow or brown. This is because of the nicotine.
Unfortunately, once your vape juices have overheated, there’s no going back. You’ll need to replace them.
Along with your juices, hot weather badly affects your vape too. The battery inside your vape will start to degrade once it hits 38°C. It will then take longer to charge, while also running down faster.
So, make it a habit to always keep your vape and juices somewhere cool and out of direct sunlight. This is one of the best ways you can look after them. Definitely don’t leave them in the car!
Just like you need to look after yourself in hot weather, your vape equipment needs a little extra attention.
For starters, while you might love to cool off on a summer day with a splash in the pool or a swim in the ocean, your vape doesn’t. It’s important to keep your vape dry — otherwise the electronics inside can become damaged. So, make sure you dry your hands thoroughly before picking it up if you’ve been swimming.
It can also be a good idea to keep a microfibre cloth handy. You can then use this to wipe away any sweat from your hands or your face before using your vape. A cloth is also handy for cleaning your coils, since hotter weather can make your juice crystallise on the coils, damaging them.
You should also invest in a good carry or storage case. Not only will it keep your juice from going bad in direct sunlight, but it’ll keep your vape safe from splashes. Plus, you’ll have everything you need to vape, even if you’re on the go.
As mentioned above, your vape’s coils are more likely to be damaged in summer as juices may crystallise on them. You’ll likely see this with any juices that have sugars or sweeteners in them. Cleaning your coils regularly will help ensure they last longer, but, just in case, it’s always a good idea to have some spares handy. That way, you can replace coils as needed.
When it’s hot, you might notice your e-liquid isn’t quite as thick as it usually is. This is normal but it can be an issue if your tank’s seals aren’t great or have started to shrink in the heat. This combination of events can mean your tank starts to leak.
Thankfully, there are things you can do to minimise the chances of tank leaks happening. For starters, you can try an e-liquid with a higher VG content as this will be thicker. You can also look at replacing your tank if it’s already leaking a little before summer kicks off.
